  • I'd be worried about non-stop bleeding and would toss the pills to see if that changed anything.

  • Not really. Some birth control screws up your hormones. I was on Depo- Provera and had this same thing happen. I would request a change in your birth control and see if that helps

  • first take a preg test. However it sounds more like what I just went through. The dr called it dismenoriah on the insurance form. He told me that my hormones were messed up and gave me some provera to stop the bleeding. The birthcontrol pills on were not the right level of hormones for me. or something I took was interfering or my body was not used to the pills. I have not had any issues since.
